Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Season five of this supernatural teen cult series is old hat to hardcore fans waiting for the sixth, but screened for the first time on British terrestrial TV tonight, episode one contains all the trademark elements that have made the show such a hit.

Buffy is now so renowned that Dracula himself comes to Sunnydale to challenge her. Her mentor, Giles, wonders whether he can teach her any more, and her friends' powers grow, as the themes of self-doubt and seduction are given a deliciously self-conscious, ironic twist.
